March 26 2019 – London, UK – QinetiQ’s data security company Boldon James, the leading specialist provider of data classification and secure messaging solutions, today announced a milestone achievement with its successful certification of an API level integration of its Classifier data classification solution with the recently announced Forcepoint DLP version 8.6.

This latest Boldon James integration into Forcepoint DLP provides end user organisations with the ability to quickly and easily adopt a consistent and best-of-breed approach to data classification. “Forcepoint is building a partner ecosystem with key partners such as Boldon James to help enterprise customers worldwide accelerate digital transformation outcomes through integrated risk-adaptive cybersecurity solutions.” Said Manolo Gonzalez, VP Business Development at Forcepoint. “This partnership delivers a new data labeling framework that enables customers to better discover, classify and protect critical data by combining the strengths of Boldon James Classifier and Forcepoint Data Loss Prevention (DLP).”

The new integrated solution builds on the existing relationship and integration between Boldon James Classifier and Forcepoint DLP, enabling close cooperation between the products to control and protect data. With version 8.6, Forcepoint provides the ability for customers to import Boldon James labelling schemas, detect classification labels more accurately via the DLP policy and automate the application of classification labels to data at rest.

Commenting on the launch, Keith Vallance, Head of Product at Boldon James said “We are excited to be closely integrated into the latest Forcepoint DLP release, and this is testament to the hard work undertaken collectively by both product teams over the past couple of years. Now our customers have the ability to easily incorporate best-of-breed data classification into their Forcepoint security environment, accelerating implementation times and improving return on investment.”
